Distribution conjectures for elliptic curves on average


Let E be an elliptic curve over the field Q of rational numbers. In this talk we consider several open conjectures about the distribution of local invariants associated with the reductions of E modulo p as p varies over the primes. In order to gain evidence for the conjectures, we consider them on average over a family of elliptic curves.
